Mitch McConnell caves on Roy Moore: Let the people of Alabama decide

Yeah, we’ve already seen this with Trump. Nothing matters anymore besides tribalism. Just like the Access Hollywood tape where the GOP was doing everything to distance itself from Trump for the first few days and then it’s all forgotten. The lesson is to never admit you’re wrong, never quit, and have enough money and power for people to want to forgive you if it means they can push their agenda through.

When You Say the Quiet Part Loud

Hatch on funding the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP):

Hatch went on to condemn the idea of “more and more spending.” After praising the “terrific job” CHIP has done for families who need help, he immediately added, “I have a rough time wanting to spend billions and billions and trillions of dollars to help people who won’t help themselves – won’t lift a finger – and expect the federal government to do everything.”

Yeah, those freeloading little brats expect everything nowadays. Get a job and pay taxes like the rest of us working slobs you shitty prepubescent little leukemia tykes.

Jared Kushner Failed to Disclose He Led a Foundation Funding Illegal Israeli Settlements Before U.N. Vote

Does Jared Kushner just turn in blank forms?

Jared Kushner failed to disclose his role as a co-director of the Charles and Seryl Kushner Foundation from 2006 to 2015, a time when the group funded an Israeli settlement considered to be illegal under international law, on financial records he filed with the Office of Government Ethics earlier this year.

The latest development follows reports on Friday indicating the White House senior adviser attempted to sway a United Nations Security Council vote against an anti-settlement resolution passed just before Donald Trump took office, which condemned the structure of West Bank settlements. The failure to disclose his role in the foundation—at a time when he was being tasked with serving as the president’s Middle East peace envoy—follows a pattern of egregious omissions that would bar any other official from continuing to serve in the West Wing, experts and officials told Newsweek.

Lou Dobbs Thinks Obama Should be Arrested

Republican logic has gone from crazy to scary:

Former President Barack Obama should be detained by federal officials for talking badly about President Donald Trump. After Obama said this week that people should “think before you speak, think before you tweet,” in an apparent reference to Trump’s twilight Twitter rants, Fox Business’ Lou Dobbs had harsh words for Obama.

“I think U.S. Marshals should follow him, and any time he wants to go follow the president like he is, and behave… I mean, this is just bad manners. It’s boorish, it’s absurd, he doesn’t realize how foolish he looks. I mean, he should be brought back by the Marshals,” Dobbs said. “Isn’t there some law that says presidents shouldn’t be attacking sitting presidents?”

Obama never actually mentioned Trump during his remarks in New Delhi. He was asked about his wife, Michelle Obama, making comments about how it was not a good idea to “tweet from bed,” a reference to Trump. “Michelle was giving the general idea .?.?. don’t say the first thing that pops in your head. Have a little bit of an edit function,” Barack Obama explained. “Think before you speak, think before you tweet.” He also pointed out he has 100 million followers, or “more than other people who use it more often.”
